Questions & Answers (11)

Ask a Question
This trip ticks all the boxes for us as far as we know and would like to enquire about the cost for it as "small group" and "private" to compare. We would also like to know how much more it would cost to book an extra hotel night at either end. Extra Hotel night in Hanoi for February 7th,2023 and an extra night in Ho Chi Minh for February 19th (check out 20th),2023 with the tour running February 8th to February 19th, 2023. We would need pick up at the airport for Feb. 7th instead of 8th (with Day 2 starting Feb.9th) and were hoping we could get a transfer on Feb. 20th to a different hotel in Ho Chi Minh in the morning instead of to the airport as we will be meeting up with a cruise tour on that day. Can you quote with and without the extra hotel nights as well? Thank you in advance for your attention to our request. Any questions please email me.

Dear Lynne,

We can customize your tour by booking a night hotel before or after the tour, booking the transfer to another hotel when you finish the tour. The price for the service depends on the number of people in your group, and the class of hotel you will be staying in, so please send me more detail.

Many thanks

Hi, I'm interested in the Highlights of Vietnam 12 days. I would be traveling by myself. Will I need to share the hotel rooms with another traveler? Thanks, Angie.
Hi Angie, We do not offer trip which sharing room for 2 different people. So you need to pay single supplement for staying in single Private room. Regards, BestPrice

Just a few questions.

1) If we did the 2 nights with Oriental Sails in Bai Tu Long Bay how much would that cost? Can you give me details on their itinerary.

2) How much would just an extra hotel night cost in Ho Chi Minh City. My husband likes to not change hotels every night. We may then consider a day trip to Mekong Delta. Can you give me a price for that as well please.

3) As far as the floating market, I have heard that has become very touristy, so it is not high on my list of things to see. Do you think it is very touristy now?

4) Last question. Is January likely to be very rainy?


Hi Sandra,

Please see my answer below:

1. If you take 2 nights cruise with Oriental sail we will surcharge +125 USD/person, please see itinerary detail in email.

2. Cost for an extra night at 3* hotel in Saigon is 55 USD. Day trip to Mekong Delta in a group cost about 49 USD/person.

3. Floating marketing in Mekong Delta is very far can not visit it in day trip, so you don't need to worry about that..

4. January is dry season with cold weather in north & cool weather in South, perfect time to travel.

For your 12 days tour from south to north. Does it includes flight back to Hanoi from hcm city?
Dear Yenlinh, Our package included 2 domestic flight from Hanoi to Hue and Da Nang to Ho Chi Minh. For return flight from Ho Chi Minh to Hanoi, it will be extra price between 100 - 150 USD/person depend on available. Regards, BestPrice

We are interested in a 12 day Vietnam tour. We will be traveling with 12 people total (7 adults, 17yr, 10yr, 6yr, 6yr, and 3 yr) between Dec 2020-Jan 2021. Is this doable? Which dates would you recommend?
Per travel date, we recommend you to start after Dec 31 to avoid being surcharged for New Year gala dinner but finish before Jan 23 as our traditional Tet holiday will be on Jan 25, therefore, you will be surcharged 2 day before and 4 day after as well. We will send you email for detail proposal with price and children policy shortly.
